The Necrophile Hummingbird presents : a dream. This album is such a joy because there has been no sampling album release on the netlabel since Size to Seizure 3 years ago. Mostly because the analogic side is growing out of control... and perhaps because turntablism is more fitting to that. Beyond the necessary struggle to an equal access to sample for everyone doing free music releases and not only the artists signed with major record companies, coming first is the right to use anything released in the public sphere as a right to answer with plunderphonics. The sampling art is more related to cut-up techniques and philosophy. It's a way to re-interprete one's reality. The same way that dreams are remixes of our waking lives. Perhaps this Snapping Back In is more a kind of art therapy to exorcise a nightmare. Whatever...
Recorded at home between June
11th and August 17th, 2020. About 150 sample sources were used in the
making on this album (most of them from beloved movies from the
60s/70s), plus some cheap online apps and a Maschine MK2 for live beats
and basslines. I hope you'll find your own meaning in this deeply
personal and haunted copied/pasted storytelling so it'll have been worth
Same as every previous release, this was already kind of a tribute to
Ennio Morricone before the Maestro passed away. "Snapping Back In" is
dedicated to him, like most music from the 21th century should be. RIP.
